Burlen sells Banjos, olives, "T"s and inlines, but last time I asked they didn't sell the barbed banjos and clear line common in the mid-late '60s cars.

They're a standard part, you should be able to get them from various places if you know the pipe ID, and thread (for banjos).

Some of the regulars sell pre made hose sets, but the markup is sometimes breathtaking.

Hi,

I' tried several suppliers to get the part I'm looking for and I've not been able to find them.
:shrug: :doh: :scratchheadyellow: :questionmarks:
HELP!

The jonction underneath the car is a 9/16" I'm looking for a nut to maintain it on the car.
The pipe is a 5/16 with an olive. The nut on the pipe is to small (probably 7/16") to go with the 9/16".

Hope someone can help. :cry:

Hi Michel.
I had no fuel lines for my Series 3 and bought them complete from Vicarage Jaguar, no one else could supply them at the time unless I sent my old ones to reclaim the fittings.
http://www.vicarage.co.uk/
The other place, which may have just the connections is Stevson
http://www.stevsonmotors.co.uk/

You may have to phone them.
This was a long time ago, but both still exist.
Good luck.

Regards

Simon

Hi there,

The fisrt nut which is pressing the olive on the union has been found at automec, the link is here :
https://www.automec.co.uk/products/bras ... -5-16-pipe
Thank you Mgcjag for this link supplied.

Clearly, the 9/16'' with 24 threads is not easy to find. After several contact through France, UK and US, I finally founf what I was looking for.
For the one which is maintaining the union on the crossmember underneath the car, it has been harder.
I finally found someone very very helpfull!
Dean Kothmann from fitting connection does have a complete bulkhead union with the good dimentions.
He decided to send my free of charge the nut I was lookin for. Once again thak you Dean!
https://www.fittingconnection.com/
I've received by regular mail the nut:

I'm now able to close the fuel line and go ahead on this topic.
I still dont understand why the current E Type parts suppliers do not have the underneath car fuel lines available. Am I the only one to face problem to get this kind of part ?

Cheers
Le chemin sera long!...

You might try a commercial hydraulic hose supplier/manufacturer. They have all sorts of threads, adaptors & whatnot. Pipe threads can be an absolute nightmare in the UK.

Yes Hugo.
A real nightmare.
I ve tried severak Uk hydraulic supplier without succes.
Now it is ok with what I ve found.
I still consider that this topic around fuel line with the E Type supplier is not done. . Parts are missing.
